Secret Genealogy IV: Native Americans Hidden in Our Family Trees
Secret Genealogy V: Black, White and Hamite; Ancestors of Color in Our Family Trees
Find out all about your name. How and where it started and who brought it to America. This is a large book about more than a thousand names and where they came from. The names were researched decades ago by genealogists and other researchers. The information is now in a book for all of us to take advantage of.
This book is clearly laid out, extremely easy to read and very helpful in advising how to search each of the many types of records you find when researching your family history. It is a great resource. It is easy to understand. It has lots of great suggestions on how to find documents.
This book includes a lot of names from A to Z in very small print. As the book’s forward makes clear, “this is, in fact, an index to the compiled service records of the 1812 soldiers from Louisiana.” The book can be very helpful.
It was originally published by the Baton Rouge: Louisiana Genealogical and Historical society, 1963.
This is a huge book with 828 pages, 32,000 names and over 850 photos. It covers the Copelands and their descendants from the colonies to 2011. A great amount of work went into this book and for the most part it is a wonderful book. There are some errors but there are always errors in genealogy. Like other genealogy books you have to use it as a guide and do your own research. I was disappointed because my Copeland/Coplen brick wall was mentioned but there were no hints to who his parents were and the man believed to be his bother was not connected to him or anyone else.
I do recommend the book for anyone researching the Copeland/Coplen families.
This would be a great gift for Christmas, Birthday and even a Wedding. Especially for a genealogist or someone interested in their family history.
You will get a 11×17 print and two 8.5×11 prints of a full color Coat of Arms and Crest, suitable for framing and matting as well as a history of the name and its origins throughout the ages.
Other names are available.
